French artist Elisabeth Lecourt has handmade a collection of dress folded from geographical maps. For this project, Elisabeth used maps from a 14th Century of Sir Francis Drake’s voyage to a diagram of rivers and mountains around the world. The intention of the artist was to display "the meaningful works of art that explore themes of sensitivity and vulnerability". Take a look at her apparel collection and see if you recognize some of the maps. For more information about Elisabeth Lecourt and her art work, visit her website: http://www.elisabethlecourt.com/.

This reminds me of an artist I worked with a couple months ago that used maps for these incredible collage works. I hadn't really seen anyone use them like that before. His name is Matthew Cusick if you're wanting to check that out,
Clothing from everyday items is always stunning to behold.
how enchanting!
